Brother Stair stands in condemnation of his followers and says that they are going to Hell for following his false prophecies which his natural death proclaimed. He was very absolute about that! This puts you in a paradox if you still follow or believe Brother Stair. His untimely natural death has proclaimed him to be deceived and, as he says, he was deceiving you too. He says that all those who follow his teaching are "going to go to Hell because you believed a lie". What will you do in light of this revelation of the prophet?
See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception,
according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world,
rather than according to Christ.
(Colossians 2:8 NASB95)
We are way past two years since the death of Brother Stair - the prophet whose death would mark the Sign of Jesus' return within six months. Not only is his Overcomer Ministry still ignoring this, they also continue headlong (or head-in-sand) in ignorance of what he really said or stood for.
Pastor Rice continues to undermine Brother Stair's words and wishes for his ministry. Brother Stair told us that it wasn't going to continue after his death and that no one is taking over after him. Still, James Rice undermines this and seeks followers after himself. See how he is getting in his own preaching and not Brother Stairs on their website? It is his Dining Hall messages that they put up daily - not Brother Stairs. They offer nothing like this with Brother Stair's messages - yet he proclaims to be the one following Brother Stair's teachings.
He is a liar, preaching a yoke (like his father Bro Stair) against things that he points the finger at (Isaiah 58:9) and claims others are doing while it is he that is actually doing it, living in greater sins than his father (Jeremiah 16:12). He not only took his father's concubine Rose (Mark 6:18), but he took her away from her husband and married her - that's what God's word calls adultery (Matt 5:32, 19:9, 6; 1Cor 7:10-11, 39; Rom 7:3). Even Brother Stair didn't go that far in his adultery with Rose.
We are witnessing the magnification of the perversion of this ministry as those there now are overtaken by the demons that ruled Brother Stair (Matthew 7:15-20). This is only being bridled by keeping the radio listeners from knowing to full truth - same as it ever was. This is accomplished largely by Pastor Rice's circular preaching that keeps blaming those who don't accept his perversions and for not joining in with them. This keeps up the Us vs. Them mentality and game that has always been the bread and butter of the Overcome Ministry. Making the opposers look like they are the sinners in the wrong so that we can continue in our sins.
What has this ministry got to stand on anymore? Not Brother Stair's words. The only way to look like you do stand on his words is to pick and choose what he said - something that Brother Stair did not allow and vehemently condemned. Only those who have fled can say that they have heeded Brother Stair's words. Remember, he says that all those who follow his teaching are going to go to Hell because you believed a lie. The only way to escape that Hell is to reject his teachings and flee from the deceiver. You cannot continue to follow Brother Stair and say you believe his words and think that those words don't pertain to you. You are deceived!

This Forum relies on self-policing. That doesn't mean that you are also a judge, jury, and executioner. Don't go blaming the website or the Administrators for allowing something that you want to be censored. Nor is it your job to straighten everyone out. Read something you don't like - get over it. If you're going to throw mud expect to get dirty. Don't come crying to us about it. For the most part, it's your Forum, we don't patrol it. This Forum is provided as a place to voice things concerning R.G. Stair. Don't cry if we give you all the rope you need to hang yourself.
The way of peace they know not (Isaiah 59:7-8)
Remember, this is not a place to condemn each other. If you have mud in your mouth find another place to expel it.
But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children: So being affectionately desirous of you,... Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:... That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. (1Thes 2:7-12)
For ye have need of patience (Heb10:36). But let patience have her perfect work (Jam 1:4). Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise (1Cor 3:18).
Let's not be like RG and James Rice, and bite and devour one another. A little humility can go a long way.
